Hello, hope you can help.

I noticed iexplore.exe is running on my task manager although the process is not open on my pc. I cannot kill the process and it continues to come back. Have tried the following: malwarebytes, spyware doctor (it won't let me update definitions), spybot search and destroy, spyware blaster, emsisoft. Presently using avast an an antivirus (although I cannot update definitions on there either).

Recently had a rouge antivirus which I got rid of using malwarebytes.

PC is a Dell Dimension DIM3000
Intel Celeron CPU 2.40 GHz
1.25 GB Ram
Windows XP Home Edition V. 2002 SP3
